    The browser from members of the original Opera team. They may be limited in what they can do with it, as it's based on Chromium, but creating another browser from the ground up just wasn't going to happen. Still, I like what they've done with it and the customization/features it offers.

    Well, it uses Google's rendering engine, which is FOSS.
    The UI layer is their own and is proprietary.[1]

    Back in the day, Opera's Presto engine was my 2nd try when a page rendered in a crazy way.

    [1]Similar to how the Eudora email app dumped its own core and went with Thunderbird's with their own UI pasted on.
    Corporations do weird things.
